Sarah Knobel Cheer

On view from August 30 to september 26, 2014

Cheer examines the role of a cheerleader through the perspective 
of a pre-teen girl. The dialogue is taken from a young girl’s 2005 
blog entry that describes her dream role as a cheerleader. 
Her discourseof a cheerleader’s strengths, trials and tribulations
is reinforced with close-up visuals of customary actions.  
he images and dialogue are constantly interrupted with abrupt
prevalent chants of “go, fight, win”.   This odd combination of 
imagery and sound examines the social structure of femininity 
and the naivety of rituals that are apart of our Western culture.  

Still from the video:
